I stumbled apawn this by accident while playing with my Zippo and all of a sudden I looked over and saw my old ipod nano case and wondered if my Zippo would fix inside, to my surprise it fix perfectly. I decided to tell you how to make your very own Zippo case.

-ipod nano case (the case all ipod nanos come with)
-another Zippo
-scissors (I guess a knife or something like that would work but this is easier)

First thing you need to do is find an ipod nano case. I know you may be thinking where to find one, this is easy, ask friends or family or look around at school (most people don't use these because they kind of suck and usually buy a better case for there ipod) and ask them for there old case.

Now Take you first Zippo and put it in the ipod case and push it to the bottom, then take your second Zippo and put it directly over your other Zippo and make sure they line up. Follow the line where the Zippo opens up and draw a faint line along there the hinge is. Now take your Zippo out of the ipod case and that your scissors and cut along the line you just made, make sure you stop just before the second seam or else it wont hold the top part on. Now all you have to do it stick your Zippo back in its new case and your done.

I decide to give you a Zippo trick which you probably know but if you don't here you go
-take your Zippo in you hand with your index finger and middle finger on one side of the Zippo and thumb on the other
-hole it so that it opens away from you
-now have it in a closed position and quickly move the Zippo across a hard surface (pant leg would work fine) only use the tip of the Zippo to open it
-now quickly move the Zippo the other way hitting the rubbing the wheel across your pant leg and igniting you Zippo
-don't worry this should not damage your pant

p.s. I didn't c/p this and I used spell check before I posted so that's why my spellings good
